David Walters was born in rural central Pennsylvania in 1968. He attended the Rhode Island School of Design where he received a BFA in Glass in 1993.
After graduation David moved to Seattle, Washington to work for Dale Chihuly and many other prominent glassworkers in the Seattle area. While working for Chihuly he met Lino Tagliapietra. in 1994 David began working with Lino and has assisted him for the past 17 years - working and traveling with the Maestro. David regards Lino as a central influence in his life and an inspiration to his development as an artist.
David’s work focuses on the narrative. Referring often to the fairy tales of our youth, he weaves into the stories a more personal interpretation in an allegorical and metaphorical style, while integrating blown form and image toward a common theme. He is represented by the Traver Gallery in Seattle and Schantz Gallery in Stockbridge Massachusettes.
